Bring the whole family along to see the animals at Zoologico de Cali, sheltering a mix of native and exotic animals, including flamingoes, Amazonian tapirs, white tigers, pythons, and kangaroos. Step into the impressive butterfly enclosure with a small piece of fruit in your hand and watch as the beautiful insects swoop down to eat from your palm. Shedding its old reputation for dirty cages and poor standards, the zoo is now known for taking good care of its animals and providing them with adequate enclosures.

  • At 24k per person it is quite expensive for Colombia. Even on a Sunday it was not crowded. Not a big zoo but quite modern and we'll organized. You can probably see everything in 2 hours. Most animals are well maintained and have enough space. Unfortunately some birds are quite crammed in a very confined space.
  • This beautiful zoo hosts all kinds of rescued animals. It can take about 4 hours to walk the whole thing but it's totally worth it for the low price. It also hosts special events every now and then.
  • We really enjoyed the zoo! We spent about 3 hours there. There are a lot of different animals, they had enough space and seemed to be happy. It is worth a visit!
  • One of the best zoos I have ever visited. The animals look like they are in great shape and very healthy. The enclosures are nice and grant them enough room to roam. A lot of diversity and a nice environment. I would highly recommend this place if you’re visiting Cali.
  • Wow so many beautiful creatures, it's so different when you see them all in the flesh! Very cool, calm zoo
